A Seascape Inspired Cardz 4 Galz

Welcome back to the bi-weekly Cardz 4 Galz challenge # 219. Our host, Johanna, picked Seascape for the theme. When you finish here, please visit the challenge site to see what the rest of the very talented design team members created. Then, don’t forget to upload your creations to our gallery. We look forward to seeing your creations there!

I didn’t strictly follow the Seascape theme. Instead, I was inspired by it, and here’s the card I created for challenge #219:

I used the retired 6 x 6 inch By the Bay DSP for this card, along with the deckled rectangles die set and the Sale-a-Bration Heartfelt Hellos stamp set. The finishing touches include the Night of Navy ribbon and three Petal Pink adhesive Milky Dots. The result is this easy-peasy seascape inspired card.

Measurements and More:

  • The Night of Navy base measures 4-1/4 by 11 inches, scored at 5-1/2 inches to create a tent fold card.
  • The white cardstock base measures 4-1/8 by 5-3/8 inches. The piece for the inside measures 4 by 5-1/4 inches.
  • After stamping the sentiment from the Heartfelt Hellos in Night of Navy ink, I cropped it from the white cardstock mat using a deckled rectangle die.
  • Then, I outlined the sentiment panel using a blue marker and added dimensionals underneath it.
  • The background By the Bay DSP measures 4 by 5-1/4 inches.
  • Trim a piece of the background DSP to 6 by 2-1/2 inches for the envelope flap.
  • Punch a 1-inch circle from the focal panel DSP for the envelope seal, and run it through your XYRON create-a-sticker.
  • Next, I cropped the DSP focal panel using a deckled rectangle die.
  • Wrap a length of Night of Navy ribbon around the focal DSP and tie it in a bow.
  • Adhere all the layers of the front of the card using multipurpose liquid glue.
  • Adhere the sentiment panel with the dimensionals.
  • Finally, add three Petal Pink milky dots.
  • I didn’t add a sentiment to the inside yet. The sentiment on the front is an all-occasion sentiment, so I will stamp one in Night of Navy ink when I know the reason for the card.
  • With that, I’d finished this coordinated card, envelope, and envelope seal set.
